Recently Adopted PERS Administrative Rules
Fee Schedule for Medical Records Requests
PERS regularly requests copies of medical records for disability eligibility determinations, ongoing reviews, appeals, and contested case hearings. The rate at which PERS reimburses medical providers for medical records has varied over time, and has not always been consistently applied. This rule will establish a published reimbursement schedule for requested medical records, providing consistency in the reimbursement we will pay providers of these records.

Rulemaking Notice Procedure       
OAR 459-001-0000 sets forth the procedure for noticing the adoption, amendment, and repeal of administrative rules. The current rule, however, stipulates that notices of rulemaking will be sent via postal mail and lists a limited group of interested parties and employers as recipients of the rulemaking notices. The proposed rule modifications update the mailing requirement to conform to agency practice of emailing notices unless the recipient requests a postal mailing. The incomplete list of employers and interested parties has been removed, and section (2) has been updated to indicate that notices of rulemaking will be provided to all persons and organizations who request to receive the notices.
